Chelsea boss calls on referees to be fair in League Cup final Chelsea boss calls on referees to be fair in League Cup final

Tomorrow, we anticipate the final match of the Football League Cup, where Chelsea and Liverpool will clash at Wembley. Earlier today, we discussed which players will feature in the starting lineup.

Addressing the journalists, Chelsea's head coach Mauricio Pochettino recalled his visit to Anfield when Liverpool secured a 4-1 victory. He referred to that match, suggesting that several contentious decisions favored the opponents.

He did not deny that Jürgen Klopp's team appeared significantly stronger, but he highlighted two "clear" penalties that the referee should have awarded to Liverpool's goal, though he did not. Simultaneously, many contentious moments were ruled in favor of the Merseysiders.

Pochettino fears that the referees might show preference to Liverpool due to Klopp's decision to depart Anfield at the end of the season.

"I believe we need to ensure fair competition. It's crucial to be just in every single decision.

I'm the first to say that Liverpool is exceptional, and Klopp is one of the best coaches in the world. But after my last experience [at Anfield], I intend to have the same level of play at Wembley. The best team will prevail."

Recall that the match is scheduled to kick off at 16:00 Central European Time. The Dailysports team has prepared information for you on where you can watch this match in your country.
